Bird feed is available in many varieties, including seed, suet and
nectar. Wild bird seed is often the most common and widely known bird feed.
However, all seeds are not the same and varying ingredients will attract
different types of birds. Also certain seeds may be more appropriate for
specific regions and seasons. For example, black oil sunflower seed is ideal
for colder climates and winter months due to the high oil content that provides
warmth and energy to birds.
Suet, a unique bird feed that includes beef fat, is
most often available in a cake form. Suet is commonly fed to birds within a
special feeder that is essentially a wire cage-like holder for the suet cake.
Suet is a high-energy bird food due to its fatty content and is especially
popular among insect-eating birds. It often contains various grains, nuts,
fruit and even flavored pellets.
Nectar, another type of feed, is a commonly
used as hummingbird bird food, but is a favorite among orioles as well. Nectar
is very sweet and contains the sugar necessary to keep these high energy birds
going. You will find nectar in both liquid and ready-to-mix powder forms. It is
very important to regularly change out your nectar because it is susceptible to
bacteria and spoiling.
